“My son loved being part of the Triathlon, and seeing the amount of children participating and enjoying the day was inspirational”

Parent 2014/2015 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon


“Over all it was an extremely positive experience.”

Parent 2014/2015 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon


“I LOVED that no one was timed, or even CARED about who came first, because everyone went at different times. But he got a medal and he FINISHED! And it’s something his mum and dad haven’t even done, and he’s only 7! So great for his self-esteem.”
